Thieving tower - one of three kept fully towers on the Hill with Wawel Castle, located in the west of the hill.
She was raised in the 14th century in the line of the Gothic curtain wall.
In the mid-19th century she was rebuilt by Austrians, similarly to remaining Wawel towers. In 1950-1951 years for her a state was restored from the 18th century, according to the plan drawn up under direction Prof. Witold Minkiewicz.
In the underground part of the tower until today an ancient prison dungeon behaved.
From a right side is a facade of old hospital.

A most attractive composition and a pleasant reminder of the autumn season that seems so far away after all this cold weather. Lovely warm light and tones; excellent sharpness throughout.

Nice looking building and interesting that there is a dungeon in the underground. Lovely texture and details against the fine sky.

On ne peut pas dire que tu manquais de lumière pour cette composition. Les détails et les couleurs ressortent à plein. Par contre, je ne crois pas que le traitement un peu forcé apporte quelque chose à l'ensemble.

Vivid colors, nice view of this castle
I think it is a good idea to not have cutting the plants growing over the building
Good coexistance between nature and concrete

After your reports I want to visit Krakow too. Attractive architecture, great history. Good presentation of the Wawel Castle.
The picture is a bit oversharpened and oversaturated. What's happened? You had so good conditions and so lovely sunlight.

I like your point of view. The walls covered with plants are very attractive. To me the photo is a bit oversaturared and in the sky it became noise. But I like it anyway.
